Two Year Studies Give ME Agita

Stories like this one in USA Today make we want to shout "NO SHIT!"  Or, at least, create an award with those words engraved into the front of it.
In 4-diet study, all lost weight if they watched their calories

When all is said and done, it comes down to calories.

A landmark study shows that people can lose weight on a variety of diets — including low-fat plans and low-carb ones — as long as they consume fewer calories.
I used to mock Morgan Spurlock, the guy who made Super Size Me, because it took him a full month to realize that pigging out at McDonalds each and every day will cause you to pack on some pounds. But, it took the bozos who ran this so-called "landmark" study TWO whole years to figure out that eating is the number one cause of weight gain!

Couldn't that research money have been better spent perfecting the electric car?
